  • Vapor Rub- ok/primal? (not to eat)

    Not sure this is the right forum for this question but not sure where else to post it.

    What are thoughts on using vicks vapor rub when you have a bit of a cold/flu and are congested and coughing? Seems to offer some mild relief and loosen up some of the congestion.

    The listed ingredients: camphor, menthol, and eucalyptus oil all plant derived and do not seem to be overly processed.

    I think you're overthinking this primal thing...
    lol

    If it makes you feel better, use it. Get some rest, too. For pete's sake, drink some bone broth!

      yeah you are

      Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

        Grok didn't have Walgreens!

        Really? Is Vapor Rub primal? Is the computer you typed that question with primal? Use the damn Vapor Rub. Pretend it is herbal scented animal lard or something.

          Seriously. If you break a leg and need surgery to reset it, pain killer is not primal but I don't think you'll say no to it. Use the damn vaporub. I limit my primal lifestyle to what I put in my mouth (no dirty jokes, please )

              Use the %$@& vapor rub. If you're so inclined, once you're feeling better, make your own.
              Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

                Fer fuck's sake. If it makes you feel better, use it. God knows Grok would've if he could've.
                Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                  It's unanimous. You're overthinking things. Use the vapor rub.

                    Why don't everyone jump down the OP's throat at once! Its a legit question. Symptoms are your bodies way of getting well and are integral to the process.

                    That said we use vicks vapor rub for the kids, but draw the line and will not use cough syrups or decongestants. Vicks gives plenty of relieve without being a suppressant of the innate immune response.

                    Maybe this shouldn't have been worded as "is it Primal"....but still worth answering.

                      i dunno, it looks pretty straight forward, even just looking at the ingredient list

                        I can't stand the smell of that stuff. I'd much rather be sick than to have that stuff offending my olfactory sense and therefore wouldn't use it. That has nothing to do with being primal really though I wouldn't condemn anyone else for using it as long as it's nowhere near my proximity.

                            They left out the petrolatum base.
